Pretty women, are you sleeping enough? If not, make a change to your daily routine. According to a new Harvard study, women with sleep disorders are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Researchers revealed that risk ranges from 47% for one sleep disorder to fourfold the risk of four other combined sleeping problems. The researchers belonging to Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health in Boston has carried out analysis on data from 133,353 women without cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

The Sleeping difficulty was analyzed based on difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep or 'most of the time' or even 'all of the time'.

A total of 6,407 type 2 diabetes cases developed during the 10-year follow up period. Women reporting two or more sleep disorders showed increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The sleeping disorders include frequent snoring, sleeping difficulty, sleep apnoea, and sleeping for less than six hours.

Adjustments were made to the lifestyle factors, and compared women with and without sleeping difficulty. The increased type 2 diabetes risk was 45% and changed to 22% after even adjusting depression, hypertension and Body Mass Index (BMI).

Researchers said, “Sleeping difficulty was significantly associated with type 2 diabetes. This association was partially explained by associations with hypertension, BMI and depression symptoms, and was particularly strong when combined with other sleep disorders.”
